The Poly Tech Engineers of Baltimore City suffered its second straight loss when they were shut out by Frederick Douglass of Baltimore City, 16-0, on Aug. 28 at Poly Field in Baltimore, Md.

Meanwhile, it was Douglass’ second consecutive victory as they had also beaten Patterson High School of Baltimore on Sept. 21.

Douglass had its way defensively, not allowing Poly to come close to the end zone. Senior safety Shaquille Woodland-Hunt had an outstanding game, intercepting a pass from Poly. Woodland-Hunt now has six interceptions so far this season, an amazing feat for a high school football player so early into the season.

Douglass junior defensive back Anthony Williams also had a big game. Williams helped cause a fumble late in the fourth quarter, then picked the ball up and ran it back 43 yards for a defensive touchdown that helped nail the coffin on Poly’s chances at a late comeback.

offense, Douglass was led by senior quarterback Brandon Oliver, who completed 14 of 30 passes in the game; one of Oliver’s passes went for 55 yards to senior receiver Maleek Williams for a touchdown that put Douglass up 8-0 in the second quarter.

now sits at 3-2 overall and third place in the Baltimore City Division I league standings behind No. 1 Edmondson-Westside and No. 2 Dunbar. Douglass will next face Southwestern (2-3 overall) on Oct. 5.
